Qoya - Creatress - Special Qoya and Art Workshop

  • MAYA Movement Arts 201 Smythe Street Greenville, SC, 29611 United States (map)

Qoya - Creatress - Special Qoya and Art workshop

We dance to feel. To remember. To be more of who we are. 
We also dance to reveal our potential and celebrate our ability to create! This special workshop we'll be dancing in honor of our unique ability to create through the universe that is our physical body, then we'll create a bit of art to anchor in our experience.

Bring your open heart, a water bottle, and your yoga mat!

Qoya is a movement practice for women, based on this simple idea... 
Through movement we remember.

We remember, as women, that our physical essence is Wise, Wild, and Free.

Wise Wild, and Free also draw reference to the movement forms practiced in a Qoya class.

Wise: inspired by the wisdom of yoga

Wild: reclaiming your true nature through the creative expression in dance

Free: the freedom to feel pleasure in the body through feminine movement

"Qoya is so much more than movement. Through Qoya we tap into the pulse of life. You know those moments where you see a sunset, when you’re on the open road and life feels full of possibility, when you are caught up in the contagious laughter of a child, when you feel the warmth of your lover’s body in bed, when you experience the fulfillment of work that you are proud of – when life expands and becomes sacred? Qoya is based on the idea that through movement we are able to tap into this essence, this sacred pulse of life. Once we experience it, we learn how to honor and express it. We learn how to cultivate this sense of the sacred, more and more, and not only in our dance, but in our lives." – Rochelle Schieck (Creatress of Qoya)

In Qoya, you dance and feel free, connect with yourself AND with all of the other women! There is no other experience like it!

There are no special skills required, just the desire to move, and feel good! We move and stretch the entire body, listen to great music, and seek the pleasure in the movement! For more information about what a Qoya class looks like, please visit
